The purified, alkaloidal, extra-potent form of cocaine. It is smoked (free-based), injected intravenously, and orally ingested. Use of crack results in alterations in function of the cardiovascular system, the autonomic nervous system, the central nervous system, and the gastrointestinal system. The slang term "crack" was derived from the crackling sound made upon igniting of this form of cocaine for smoking.
A group of metabolic disorders primarily of infancy characterized by the subacute onset of psychomotor retardation, hypotonia, ataxia, weakness, vision loss, eye movement abnormalities, seizures, dysphagia, and lactic acidosis. Pathological features include spongy degeneration of the neuropile of the basal ganglia, thalamus, brain stem, and spinal cord. Patterns of inheritance include X-linked recessive, autosomal recessive, and mitochondrial. Leigh disease has been associated with mutations in genes for the PYRUVATE DEHYDROGENASE COMPLEX; CYTOCHROME-C OXIDASE; ATP synthase subunit 6; and subunits of mitochondrial complex I. (From Menkes, Textbook of Child Neurology, 5th ed, p850).
A family of extremely venomous snakes, comprising coral snakes, cobras, mambas, kraits, and sea snakes. They are widely distributed, being found in the southern United States, South America, Africa, southern Asia, Australia, and the Pacific Islands. The elapids include three subfamilies: Elapinae, Hydrophiinae, and Lauticaudinae. Like the viperids, they have venom fangs in the front part of the upper jaw. The mambas of Africa are the most dangerous of all snakes by virtue of their size, speed, and highly toxic venom. (Goin, Goin, and Zug, Introduction to Herpetology, 3d ed, p329-33)

Caregiver behaviors and resources influence child height-for-age in rural Chad. (1/65)The purpose of this study was to identify caregiver characteristics that influence child nutritional status in rural Chad, when controlling for socioeconomic factors. Variables were classified according to the categories of a UNICEF model of care: caregiving behaviors, household food security, food and economic resources and resources for care and health resources. Sixty-four households with 98 children from ages 12 to 71 mo were part of this study. Caregivers were interviewed to collect information on number of pregnancies, child feeding and health practices, influence on decisions regarding child health and feeding, overall satisfaction with life, social support, workload, income, use of income, and household food expenditures and consumption. Household heads were questioned about household food production and other economic resources. Caregiver and household variables were classified as two sets of variables, and separate regression models were run for each of the two sets. Significant predictors of height-for-age were then combined in the same regression model. Caregiver influence on child-feeding decisions, level of satisfaction with life, willingness to seek advice during child illnesses, and the number of individuals available to assist with domestic tasks were the caregiver factors associated with children's height-for-age. Socioeconomic factors associated with children's height-for-age were the amount of harvested cereals, the sources of household income and the household being monogamous. When the caregiver and household socioeconomic factors were combined in the same model, they explained 54% of the variance in children's height-for-age, and their regression coefficients did not change or only slightly increased, except for caregiver's propensity to seek advice during child illnesses, which was no longer significant. These results indicate that caregiver characteristics influence children's nutritional status, even while controlling for the socioeconomic status of the household. (+info)
First nationwide survey of the health of schoolchildren in Chad. (2/65)Survey data are presented from a nationwide survey of the health of schoolchildren in Chad. The country was stratified into distinct ecological zones based on satellite sensor environmental data. Twenty schools were visited and 1024 children aged between 6 and 15 years were included in the study. The overall prevalence of stunting, underweight, anaemia and goitre was 18.7, 16.5, 25.1 and 23.3%, respectively. Schistosoma haematobium, Schistosoma mansoni and hookworm were the only helminth species found with prevalences of 13.2, 1 and 32.7%, respectively. A greater proportion of boys were stunted, underweight, anaemic and infected with S. haematobium and hookworm than girls. Older children were more stunted, underweight and infected with S. haematobium and hookworm than younger children, but less anaemic. The prevalence of infection showed marked geographical heterogeneity, with hookworm prevalence being highest in the Sudanian and tropical zone, and S. haematobium being most prevalent in the Sahelian zone and the Logone and Chari basins in the west of the country. These data show that there is a high prevalence of helminth infection in Chad, but that treatment for S. haematobium and hookworm should be targeted to different geographical areas. (+info)
Tolerability of doxycycline monohydrate salt vs. chloroquine-proguanil in malaria chemoprophylaxis. (3/65)The resistance of Plasmodium falciparum to the chloroquine-proguanil association (C/P) as antimalarial chemoprophylaxis is becoming increasingly common in Africa. Daily oral doxycycline hyclate 100 mg is effective as malaria prophylaxis. But the hyclate salt's adverse effects combined with the capsule's galenic form are incompatible with good chemoprophylaxis compliance. We conducted a randomized group study of 522 French soldiers deployed in Gabon and Chad for 4 months to determine the tolerability of short-term malaria chemoprophylaxis with a 100-mg daily tablet of a monohydrate doxycycline salt compared with a daily C/P capsule. At days 7 and 120, compliance was better in the doxycycline group [respectively 98.5%vs. 73.9% (P < 0.001) and 90.5%vs. 74% (P < 0.001)]. No major event (evacuation, hospitalization) was related to the medications. Epigastralgia, diarrhoea, urticaria, mouth ulcers, sun sensitization and desquamation were significantly more frequent in the C/P group (P < 0.05). There was no statistical difference for malaria incidence, vertigo, nausea and hair loss. These results suggest that doxycycline monohydrate may be safely used in short-term malaria chemoprophylaxis. With the same efficacy as a hyclate doxycycline, doxycycline monohydrate could be a good chemoprophylaxis for short-term travellers at particular risk of C/P resistant P. falciparum malaria. (+info)
Use of remote sensing and a geographical information system in a national helminth control programme in Chad. (4/65)OBJECTIVE: To design and implement a rapid and valid epidemiological assessment of helminths among schoolchildren in Chad using ecological zones defined by remote sensing satellite sensor data and to investigate the environmental limits of helminth distribution. METHODS: Remote sensing proxy environmental data were used to define seven ecological zones in Chad. These were combined with population data in a geographical information system (GIS) in order to define a sampling protocol. On this basis, 20 schools were surveyed. Multilevel analysis, by means of generalized estimating equations to account for clustering at the school level, was used to investigate the relationship between infection patterns and key environmental variables. FINDINGS: In a sample of 1023 schoolchildren, 22.5% were infected with Schistosoma haematobium and 32.7% with hookworm. None were infected with Ascaris lumbricoides or Trichuris trichiura. The prevalence of S. haematobium and hookworm showed marked geographical heterogeneity and the observed patterns showed a close association with the defined ecological zones and significant relationships with environmental variables. These results contribute towards defining the thermal limits of geohelminth species. Predictions of infection prevalence were made for each school surveyed with the aid of models previously developed for Cameroon. These models correctly predicted that A. lumbricoides and T. trichiura would not occur in Chad but the predictions for S. haematobium were less reliable at the school level. CONCLUSION: GIS and remote sensing can play an important part in the rapid planning of helminth control programmes where little information on disease burden is available. Remote sensing prediction models can indicate patterns of geohelminth infection but can only identify potential areas of high risk for S. haematobium. (+info)
Light and electronic observations on Henneguya ghaffari (Myxosporea, Bivalvulida) infecting the gills and intestine of Nile perch Lates niloticus (Pisces: Teleostei) from Chad and Senegal. (5/65)Henneguya ghaffari Ali, 1999, described for the first time in Egypt, has been found on gills and intestine of Nile perch Lates niloticus L. from Chad and Senegal (Africa). It formed plasmodia which induced lesions of infected tissues. In fresh state, the spore body was ovoid and its size was 11.07 +/- 0.7 (range 11 to 13) x 7.7 +/- 0.4 (range 7 to 8) microm. The length of the caudal appendages was 44.2 +/- 1.7 (42 to 48) microm. The polar capsules were pyriform, of equal size, with the polar filament showing 4 coils, and measuring 3.17 +/- 0.1 (range 3 to 4) x 2.2 +/- 0.1 (range 1 to 2) microm. The total length of the spore was 55.73 +/- 1.7 (range 53 to 61) microm. At ultrastructural level, our results confirm that in Henneguya species, the sporoplasm is binucleate and the pansporaoblast is disporous. (+info)
Health and equity impacts of a large oil project in Africa. (6/65)A system of external reviewers was established by the World Bank Group to promote a thorough environmental and health impact assessment for the 3.5 billion US dollars Chad Oil Export Project, based on a loan request from Chad, Cameroon and a consortium of oil companies. The environmental and health assessment process showed evidence of its ability to minimize the number of deaths from malaria, traffic accidents and construction accidents and the occurrence of minor sexually transmitted diseases, diarrhoeal diseases and respiratory diseases; it also probably limited adverse impacts on wildlife and tropical ecology along the pipeline route. However, the system was unable to deal with the larger issues, which included: the intrinsic unsustainability of this kind of extraction project; its eventual contribution to large amounts of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere; the lack of equity in sharing the risks, negative impacts, benefits and decision-making among the various participants in the project; and the possible acceleration of transmission of the AIDS virus into central Africa. Unfortunately, the international panel of experts appointed by the World Bank Group was largely ignored by the project proponents, and had little success in minimizing the most serious impacts or in improving the social equity of the project.

Possible illnesses: assessing the health impacts of the Chad Pipeline Project. (7/65)Health impact assessments associated with large-scale infrastructure projects, such as the Chad-Cameroon Petroleum Development and Pipeline Project, monitor pre-existing conditions and new diseases associated with particular industries or changes in social organization. This paper suggests that illness self-reports constitute a complementary set of benchmarks to measure the health impacts of these projects, and presents data gathered in ongoing household and health service surveys in Ngalaba, a village near a major oilfield in Chad. In an initial 16-week period of weekly data collection, 363 people reported few of the clinically chronic or asymptomatic conditions expected according to health transition theory, and the overall level of illness reporting was low. Illnesses often were described by symptoms or lay diagnoses. Health care practitioners were consulted rarely; when they were, resources for diagnosis and treatment were limited. Clinically acute, short-duration illnesses (e.g. parasitic infections, toothaches, or hernias) were experienced as chronic conditions and were reported week after week. The low levels of illness reporting and lack of clinically chronic conditions are not taken to mean that rural Chadians are healthy. Rather, the patterns of morbidity reflect a particular local ecology in which health services are organized and care dispensed in ways that limit the possibilities for illness in terms of types of illnesses that can be diagnosed and reported, forms illnesses take, and ways in which illnesses are experienced. Illness self-reports are useful adjuncts to "harder" biological measures in HIAs, particularly in the context of large-scale infrastructure projects with explicit development goals. Rather than providing data on the extent to which harm has been mitigated by corporate, state, and donor activities, self-reports show the possibilities of illness in local contexts. (+info)
Community level risk factors for numbers of landmine victims in Chad and Thailand. (8/65)STUDY OBJECTIVE: To determine commonalities of landmine victim risk factors in two very different countries. DESIGN AND SETTING: Data on 249 communities in Chad and 530 in Thailand were collected during 2000-2001 as part of the Global Landmine Survey. Community level variables were analysed in a series of Poisson mixture models with number of landmine victims as the dependent variable. Models developed for each country were tested on the other to investigate similarities and robustness of identification of risk factors. MAIN RESULTS: Increased community level risk was associated with population size, closeness to another community with victims, emplacement in the previous two years, blocked water or pasture, and the proximity of unexploded ordnance or anti-tank mines. In Chad, risk factors tended to be more related to identifying communities that had crossed a threshold between near zero and moderate risk; Thailand, factors were more related to increases in victim rates. CONCLUSIONS: Current systems of collecting data on community characteristics and landmine victims can provide meaningful risk factor information. Remediation approaches that focus on blockage of important resources and areas of recent, high intensity conflicts may be the most beneficial in reducing the numbers of victims. (+info)

Food insecurity in the Lake Chad basin
Dakar/Accra, 23 June 2016 - Massive population displacements and insecurity in the Lake Chad basin are putting livelihoods and food security at high risk. In northeast Nigeria alone, the impact of the conflict on agriculture is estimated at USD 3.7 billion due to livestock losses and reduced agricultural production, destruction of irrigation and farming facilities, and collapse of extension services including veterinary health facilities.. In the affected areas, civilians bear the burden of insecurity. Displaced people lost their assets and most of them rely on the limited resources of host communities, who themselves have suffered from the disruption of agricultural activities and of transhumance flows over the past few years. Staple food prices have also increased, with rises up to 50 to 100 percent reported in some areas of Borno State.. As of June 2016, 4.6 million people are severely food insecure in the Lake Chad basin, of which 65 percent are located in Northeast Nigeria, especially in ...
Toxics | Free Full-Text | Heavy Metal Pollution of Chari River Water during the Crossing of NDjamena (Chad)
This study was carried out to identify and assess the water quality of the Chari River. The Chari, 1200 km long, is Chads major water source. Municipal sewage, industrial wastewater discharge, and seasonal run-off from agriculture are regularly fed into the river. Several trace metals such as Cu, Zn, Fe, Ni, Cr, Mn, and Cd, were measured in different sampling stations located along the Chari River at NDjamena in different campaigns from 2008 to 2010. Overall, manganese, zinc, chromium, and copper concentration levels were mainly in the range of the permissible limits prescribed by WHO guidelines (WHO 2011). Nickel, iron, and cadmium concentrations were still high. This preliminary study allowed us to identify the magnitude of toxic pollutants, which are responsible for Chari River water contamination in the study area. This study revealed that urgent measures must be taken to protect the local people from health problems resulting from high concentrations of heavy metals.

Chad of Mercia - Wikipedia
There are many place names containing the element chad or something similar. In many cases, reference to the early forms of the name suggests that the derivation is not from the name Chad, but from some other word. It is possible that even where a name might reasonably be thought to derive from Chad that the individual is some other of the same name. Hence great caution needs to be exercised in explaining ancient toponyms by reference to St Chad. That being said, a township located outside Ladysmith, Kwa-Zulu Natal is named St. Chads after an Anglican Mission in the area.. One toponym with a good claim to derivation from the saints name is Chadkirk Chapel in Romiley, Greater Manchester, which dates back to the 14th century - although the site is much older, possibly dating back to the 7th century when it is believed St Chad visited to bless the well there. Cameron points out that -kirk toponyms more frequently incorporate the name of the dedicatee, rather than the patron, so there is ...

Chad : Wikis (The Full Wiki)
The music group Chari Jazz formed in 1964 and initiated Chads modern music scene. Later, more renowned groups such as African Melody and International Challal attempted to mix modernity and tradition. Popular groups such as Tibesti have clung faster to their heritage by drawing on sai, a traditional style of music from southern Chad. The people of Chad have customarily disdained modern music. However, in 1995 greater interest has developed and fostered the distribution of CDs and audio cassettes featuring Chadian artists. Piracy and a lack of legal protections for artists rights remain problems to further development of the Chadian music industry.. Millet is the staple food throughout Chad. It is used to make balls of paste that are dipped in sauces. In the north this dish is known as alysh; in the south, as biya.

The CHADS2 score was 0 in 45.4% of patients, 1-2 in 42%, and 3-6 in 12.6%. During a median follow-up of 60 months, 51% of patients had a recurrence of an atrial tachyarrhythmia (AT). The recurrence rate at 1 year was 34%. The independent predictors of recurrent AT were left atrial diameter (hazard ratio [HR], 1.04 per millimeter) and CHADS2 score (HR, 1.3). The CHADS2 score was predictive of recurrent AT >2 years post-ablation. Only 1% of patients with a CHADS2 score of 0 had recurrent AT >2 years post-ablation. In patients with a CHADS2 score of 3-6 who were free of AT during the first 2 years of follow-up, 64% subsequently had recurrent AT.. ...

Assistance to Sudanese refugees in Chad - Refugee | WFP | United Nations World Food Programme - Fighting Hunger Worldwide
Assistance to Sudanese refugees in Chad. Continued fighting between Sudanese government forces and two rebel movements seeking autonomy for Darfur, keeps pushing more people over the border. UNHCR reported about 18,000 arrived last week, after Sudanese government forces, backed by Arab tribal militiamen on horseback, raided and burned 10 villages. The newly arrived refugees in Chad are being registered by UNHCR. Since Sunday, around 2,000 people have been registered in the villages of Kourbileke, Ogona and Kabrara. A new refugee site was identified by the Government in Yaroungou, to relocate 15,000 refugees from Maro and Danamadji. Médecins sans Frontières reported an average acute malnutrition rate among the children of refugees and of local population in Tine of 15%. WFPs Regional Logistics Officer and an official of the USAID Regional Office in Dakar visited Adré, Farchana and Birak (Eastern Chad) from 23 to 27 January 2004.

Field evaluation in Chad of community usage of CD4 T lymphocyte counting by alternative single-platform flow cytometry | BMC...
In the present study, we addressed the principal issues raised over 5 years of routine usage of the Auto40 flow cytometers which had been implemented in 8 HIV monitoring laboratories throughout Chad. The installation and extended usage of a significant number of Auto40 flow cytometers in Chad also allowed us to assess the performance of these CD4 T cells counters in situations of actual use, across an entire country with harsh climatic conditions and a large geographical territory. This field approach is original, and complements the previous strictly biological evaluations of the analyzers in reference laboratories in Senegal , Cameroon [21, 22], as well as recently in Chad .. The analyzers were able to function properly regardless of the level of the laboratory, including in level-3 laboratories in health centers. They were even able to function properly in rooms partially exposed to the outside environment, which were not air conditioned, which had widespread dust, and in settings ...
First-Ever Atrial Fibrillation Documented After Hemorrhagic or Ischemic Stroke : The Role of the CHADS(2) Score at the Time of...
Background: The CHADS(2) score (C, congestive heart failure [CHF]; H, hypertension [HT]; A, age ,= 75 y; D, diabetes mellitus; S-2, prior stroke or transient ischemic attack) is used to assess the risk of ischemic stroke in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF). However, its role in patients without documented AF is not well explored. Hypothesis: The goal of the current study was to explore if the incidence of hospitalization with first-ever AF after stroke increased with increasing CHADS(2) score. Methods: We identified 57 636 patients with nonfatal stroke and no documented AF in the Swedish Stroke Register (Riks-Stroke) during 2001-2004 and followed them for a mean of 2.2 years through record linkage to the Inpatient and Cause of Death registers. Cox regression hazard models were used to estimate the relative risk (RR) of new AF following stroke and its association with different CHADS(2) scores. Results: Overall, 2769 patients were hospitalized with new AF (4.8%, 21.7 per 1000 person-years). ...

Simone says that she always thinks of Chad when she hears that song. Whitney said that she better not let their Mom hear her talking like that since she doesnt want them hanging around Chad. Simone says that she will just have to accidentally run into Chad from now on.Eve walks into the kitchen as Simone is saying this. Eve tells her that she had better not, she told them to stay away from Chad and she meant it. Simone wants to know why Eve gets upset when she hears Chads name. Eve tells her that she is just trying to protect her from a boy who could bring her a great deal of harm.Simone says that she only wants to be his friend, but Eve thinks that she wants a little bit more than that. Simone tries to get TC to talk to Eve about Chad, but TC agrees with Eve. He then tells the girls to get their things so that they could go to the ...
Integrin α2β1 Is a Receptor for the Cartilage Matrix Protein Chondroadherin | JCB
In the present investigation we show that CHAD, a relatively abundant noncollagenous protein in cartilage extracellular matrix, interacts with β1 integrins on bovine chondrocytes. This interesting finding identifies CHAD as a candidate for mediating signals between the chondrocytes and the cartilage matrix.. CHAD is a member of the LRR protein family (35). Among other members in this family are the small cartilage proteoglycans biglycan, decorin, fibromodulin, and lumican. These proteoglycans are all known to interact with collagen (18, 41, 47), but it is not known if CHAD interacts with collagen or other matrix molecules.. Chondrocyte adhesion to CHAD was partially inhibited by a rat polyclonal antibody against β1 integrin. Species differences between cells and antibodies may explain why the inhibition was not total. Alternatively, other receptors than β1 integrins may also be involved in the adhesion to CHAD. We found that adhesion of chondrocytes to CHAD was dependent on Mg2+ or Mn2+ but ...

Origin of the black shale-hosted Chadian phosphorus-manganese deposit, Shaanxi Province, China | Economic Geology |...
The Chadian phosphorus-manganese deposit occurs in the late Sinian Doushantuo Formation. The orebearing sequence consists of black phyllite, a phosphorite ore sequence, a manganese ore sequence, and dolostone. Phosphorite ores are divided into four types: psammitic, pelletal, micritic, and fine- grained crystalline phosphorites. The manganese ores, immediately overlying the phosphorite ores, consist of manganese carbonate (rhodochrosite) and P- bearing manganese oxide, both having pelletal and oolitic structures.Chemical analyses show that phosphorite ores contain from 7.6 to 14.1 percent P, 0.3 to 6.7 percent Mn, and 0.6 to 0.9 percent organic carbon; manganese ores contain 11.3 to 24.2 percent Mn, 0.1 to 5.7 percent P, and about 0.4 percent organic carbon.The occurrence and composition of the ore-bearing sequence indicate that phosphorite and manganese carbonate formed in a transition zone between reducing (euxinic) and slightly oxidizing depositional environments. Deposition in relatively ...

Demographics of Chad - Wikipedia
The people of Chad speak more than 100 different languages and divide themselves into many ethnic groups. However, language and ethnicity are not the same. Moreover, neither element can be tied to a particular physical type.. Although the possession of a common language shows that its speakers have lived together and have a common history, peoples also change languages. This is particularly so in Chad, where the openness of the terrain, marginal rainfall, frequent drought and famine, and low population densities have encouraged physical and linguistic mobility. Slave raids among[specify] non-Muslim peoples, internal slave trade, and exports of captives northward from the ninth to the twentieth centuries also have resulted in language changes. Anthropologists view ethnicity as being more than genetics. Like language, ethnicity implies a shared heritage, partly economic, where people of the same ethnic group may share a livelihood, and partly social, taking the form of shared ways of doing ...

Cal wideout Chad Hansen headed to NFL
The Bear Raid, already in search of a quarterback for 2017, now must find a No. 1 receiver.. Chad Hansen, Cals top wideout this season, announced Wednesday that he is headed to the NFL.. Projected to be a middle-round pick in the upcoming draft, Hansen ranks third in the country in receptions at 9.2 per game and was fourth in receiving yards (124.9 per game).. After serious consideration and countless discussions with my family, teammates and coaches, I have decided to declare for the 2017 NFL Draft, Hansen said in a statement. Competing in the NFL has always been among my highest goals and I believe the time to pursue this opportunity is now.. Hansen was selected first-team all-Pac-12 by the Associated Press and ESPN.com. The Pac-12 coaches placed Hansen on the second team. He caught 92 passes for 1,249 yards and 11 touchdowns.. Chad played a significant role in our offensive success last season and was certainly one of the top receivers in the nation, head coach Sonny Dykes said. He ...

YOUNG BLOOD: Chad Pitman - Interview with photographer Chad Pitman - Picture/Story - Fahey Klein Gallery
In Chad Pitmans new body of work COLOR & FIGURES the still life genre is reconsidered through the serial capture of one of the mediums most popular subjects: fruit. Unlike familiar still life, however, Pitmans images are subject to time. Over the course of a year, the artist regularly photographed the same pieces of fruit as they decomposed against backgrounds of a complimentary hue. While clearly photographs, Pitmans works are very much painterly in their composition and suggestive of a highly considered process in the overall congruence of the series. The deconstruction of the signifier (in this case the fruit) into something new entirely brings to light a new language. When seen together as a complete story, these images communicate the delicacy of a moment while also reconsidering standards of beauty. In Pitmans photographs decomposition becomes appealing as it is seen mostly for its resulting color and form; the process documented is not a transition into an end but a transition into ...
BABY WAS A SINNER: A TRIBUTE TO CHAD HANKS OF AMERICAN HEAD CHARGE | Bloodrock Media
His name was Chad Hanks and he was a very good friend of mine.. Normally Im also pretty indifferent to death. Ive always been of the belief, a belief he and I shared, that were all pretty insignificant and theres really nothing waiting for us at the end, that it is up to us to make our own meaning while we are alive.. Chads passing is different. I have not had to cope with the loss of a close friend since my time in the military, and it was under very different circumstances. With this, Im having a hard time putting into words how much this man meant to me.. When youre a musician, you dont see many of your closest friends very often. One of the things you sign up for right at the beginning, is the understanding that youre going to be isolated from those you care about. In the last years of his life, we didnt speak very often. Not because wed fallen out of touch, but because we were both busy. While we didnt speak as often as we once did (or should have), we were both of the mindset ...
CHA2DS2-VASc score - Wikipedia
The CHADS2 score and its updated version, the CHA2DS2-VASc score, are clinical prediction rules for estimating the risk of stroke in patients with non-rheumatic atrial fibrillation (AF), a common and serious heart arrhythmia associated with thromboembolic stroke. Such a score is used to determine whether or not treatment is required with anticoagulation therapy or antiplatelet therapy, since AF can cause stasis of blood in the upper heart chambers, leading to the formation of a mural thrombus that can dislodge into the blood flow, reach the brain, cut off supply to the brain, and cause a stroke. A high score corresponds to a greater risk of stroke, while a low score corresponds to a lower risk of stroke. The CHADS2 score is simple and has been validated by many studies. In clinical use, the CHADS2 score (pronounced chads two) has been superseded by the CHA2DS2-VASc score (chads vasc ), which gives a better stratification of low-risk patients. The CHADS2 score does not include some common ...

Chad Health and Medical Services
A range of diseases afflicts the populace of Chad. In 1983 infectious and parasitic diseases were the most prevalent ailments, followed by respiratory afflictions and nervous disorders. In 1988 a severe epidemic of meningitis affected NDjamena, in particular. By 1987 only one case of acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) had been reported to the World Health Organization; however, it was likely that incidence of the disease was many times higher, especially in the southern areas near Cameroon and Central African Republic. In the early 1960s, the government made a substantial effort to extend the countrys limited health infrastructure. Despite the ensuing civil conflict, the government has attempted to maintain and expand health services. Foreign assistance has allowed the construction of new buildings and the renovation of existing facilities, as well as the laying of groundwork for training health care professionals. By the early 1980s, health facilities included five hospitals (at ...

The benefits of One Health for pastoralists in Africa
Introduction. The Human and Animal Health Unit at the Swiss Tropical and Public Health Institute, Basel, Switzerland, is a multidisciplinary research unit working with partner institutions in nine countries in Africa (Ethiopia, Kenya, Chad, Mali, Mauritania, Cöte dIvoire) and Asia (Kyrgyzstan, Mongolia, Vietnam). We focus on health research for mobile pastoralists and the control of zoonotic diseases in developing countries. Several of these diseases are emerging and many zoonotic diseases are also categorised as neglected diseases. Pastoralist populations in these countries are often marginalised by government healthcare systems because of the remote location of their camps and villages or high mobility (Schelling et al. 2010). Several of our studies have shown that the application of the one health concept is especially valuable in the settings of mobile pastoralism (Schwabe 1964). This review summarises the importance of one health for pastoralists in Africa.. The Sahel ecosystem and ...

UN says new polio outbreak in Sudan caused by oral vaccine - KGET 17
LONDON (AP) - The World Health Organization says a new polio outbreak in Sudan is linked to an ongoing vaccine-sparked epidemic in Chad - a week after the U.N. health agency declared the African continent free of the wild polio virus. In a statementthis week, WHO said two children in Sudan - one from South Darfur state and the other from Gedarif state, close to the border with Ethiopia and Eritrea - were paralyzed in March and April. Both had been recently vaccinated against polio. WHO said initial outbreak investigations show the cases are linked to an ongoing vaccine-derived outbreak in Chad that was first detected last year and is now spreading in Chad and Cameroon.. There is local circulation in Sudan and continued sharing of transmission with Chad, the U.N. agency said, adding that genetic sequencing confirmed numerous introductions of the virus into Sudan from Chad.. WHO said it had found 11 additional vaccine-derived polio cases in Sudan and that the virus had also been identified in ...

One of these stories was his involvement in the war against Chad. Al-Qaddafi decided to get involved in a civil war in neighboring Chad, and actually did occupy part of this country as if he need more land (Libya is the 17th largest country in the world). One day he told high school students in Libya they were going on a field trip. He sent buses to their schools, gave them guns and sent them to fight in Chad. Thousands of Libyans died and got injured in a brutal war in 1986. Qaddafi claimed a decisive victory in Chad initially, but when he suffered a bad defeat he went on Libyan TV to criticize the stupid military that decided on its own to get involved in this war. He didnt want Libyans to see those who were wounded with visible injuries such as head injuries or amputations, so he ordered the military to kill those injured. Yes thats right, he ordered the silent execution of those Libyan civilians and soldiers who were forced to fight in an unnecessary war against their will and were ...

Health centres stretched as infant malnutrition rises - IFRC
Each year the number of children we see goes up, says Mahamat Abacar, health focal point at Mao hospital in northern Chad. In 2010 there were around 800 serious cases, last year 3,900, and this year already weve treated over 2,000 babies. In the grounds of the hospital, tents are being erected in the sand to make room for the expected influx of new admissions as the effects of drought across the Sahel start to be felt. An estimated 127,000 people are already classed as malnourished in Chad following poor rains, insect infestations and a sudden drop in wages sent home from Chadians working in Libya. We have 50 nutritional centres in the region, Abacar says. If the children have a very serious condition, they come here for intensive support. It usually takes a week or so for them to be in a stable enough position to go home and then they will be monitored every week by a local or mobile clinic.. Asked about the reasons for this years rise in numbers he cites the poor rains, insects and ...
Educating pastoralists and extension officers on diverse livestock diseases in a changing environment in Tanzania | Pastoralism...
Pastoralists living in the rural study villages near Ruaha National Park face challenges common to pastoralists in other regions of sub-Saharan Africa, including lack of livestock health services, pasture and water scarcity, and limited access to livestock markets (e.g. Lybbert et al. 2004; Mosalagae and Magotsi 2013). Livestock disease was identified as a limiting factor to pastoralist livestock production and herd sustainability at multiple stakeholder levels, but some disease priorities differ among pastoralists, government extension officers, and veterinary officials responsible for disease surveillance and services at broader geographic levels. The combination of disease and decreased access to pasture and water resources represents a significant threat to the pastoralist system in the Ruaha landscape. In the face of climate variability and landscape change, targeted livestock health education for pastoralists and extension officers was identified as a common pathway for improving herd ...

Viral vectored hepatitis C virus vaccines generate pan-genotypic T cell responses to conserved subdominant epitopes. - Nuffield...
BACKGROUND:Viral genetic variability presents a major challenge to the development of a prophylactic hepatitis C virus (HCV) vaccine. A promising HCV vaccine using chimpanzee adenoviral vectors (ChAd) encoding a genotype (gt) 1b non-structural protein (ChAd-Gt1b-NS) generated high magnitude T cell responses. However, these T cells showed reduced cross-recognition of dominant epitope variants and the vaccine has recently been shown to be ineffective at preventing chronic HCV. To address the challenge of viral diversity, we developed ChAd vaccines encoding HCV genomic sequences that are conserved between all major HCV genotypes and adjuvanted by truncated shark invariant chain (sIitr). METHODS:Age-matched female mice were immunised intramuscularly with ChAd (108 infectious units) encoding gt-1 and -3 (ChAd-Gt1/3) or gt-1 to -6 (ChAd-Gt1-6) conserved segments spanning the HCV proteome, or gt-1b (ChAd-Gt1b-NS control), with immunogenicity assessed 14-days post-vaccination. RESULTS:Conserved segment vaccines

John Nicholas Brown The Brown family has played too conspicuous and important a part in the life of Rhode Island from the very founding of the colony to the present day to require introduction to the readers of the history of the State. The late John Nicholas Brown, for several decades one of the foremost figures in financial and official circles in Rhode Island, was a descendant in the eighth American generation of the Rev. Chad Brown. (I) Rev. Chad Brown, immigrant ancestor and founder of the family, came from England in the ship Martin, which arrived in Boston, in the Massachusetts Colony, in July, 1638. He brought with him his wife Elizabeth, son John, then eight years old, and perhaps younger children. A fellow passenger died on the voyage, and Chad Brown witnessed the will soon after his arrival. He did not remain long in the Massachusetts Colony, probably because of his religious views, but soon removed to Providence, where he became at once a leader and one of the most valued citizens of ...

Gaourang II of Bagirmi - Wikipedia
Abd ar-Rahman Gaourang II (also Gaorang or Gwaranga c. 1858 - 1918) was Mbang of Bagirmi from 1885 to 1918. He came to power at a time when the sultanate was in terminal decline, subject to both Wadai and Bornu. The Sudanese warlord Rabih az-Zubayr made him his vassal in 1893. Gaourang signed a treaty that made his sultanate a French protectorate in 1897. After the final defeat of Rabih in 1900 he ruled as a subordinate of the French in Chad until his death in 1918. The sultanate of Bagirmi was on the east bank of the Chari to the south of Lake Chad. In the 19th century Bagirmi, once a province of the Bornu Empire to the northwest, was now disputed between Bornu and the Wadai Empire to the northeast. The sultanate at this time was rapidly losing power. It paid tribute, mainly in slaves, to either Bornu or Wadai, or sometimes to both. The main source of income for the people of Bagirmi was slave raiding among the Sara people to the south. Abd ar-Rahman Gaourang was born to the Bagirmi ruling ...

Background. Before his death at the hands of government military forces in North Kordofan in 2011, Khalil Ibrahim was the leader of the Justice and Equality Movement, probably the most coherent of the various rebel factions in Darfur.. He was born in the village of Tine on the border between Chad and Sudan, and like the Chadian president and erstwhile JEM-backer Idris Deby, hailed from the Zaghawa ethnic group (although Khalil is a Zaghawa Kobe and Deby a Zaghawa Bideyat).. Education. Khalil, who was related to many of the Sultans of the Zaghawa Kobe, travelled to the big towns to complete his education, studying at al-Fashir secondary school and then obtaining a degree in medicine from al-Jazira university in central Sudan in 1984. Like many Darfuris isolated by the secular ways of urban Sudan, he joined the Islamic Movements student wing (The Islamic Way, or al-Ittijah al-Islami) during his secondary school years.. Khalil first joined the government in 1989 directly after Omar al-Bashirs ...
Justice in Senegal | Human Rights Watch
Twenty-one years after his overthrow and flight to Senegal, the former Chadian dictator Hissène Habré may finally face trial for brutality against his own people. On Tuesday, July 24, four days after the world court in The Hague ruled that Senegal must bring Habré to justice, Senegal and the African Union agreed on a plan for a special court to try Habré. Senegals new president, Macky Sall, says he wants proceedings to begin later this year.. If the case does go forward, it would mark a significant reversal of fortune for Habré and his victims. Despite being accused of thousands of political killings and systematic torture during his 1982-1990 reign, Habré has basked in two seaside villas in Dakar, using the millions he allegedly stole from Chad to build a network of supporters in Senegal.. A Senegalese judge indicted Habré in 2000 on atrocity charges, but former president Abdoulaye Wade found one pretext after another to delay Habrés reckoning, turning his victims saga into what the ...
Poverty across the agro- ecological zones in rural Pakistan
Downloadable! Poverty has increased during the 90s overall as well as in rural and urban areas, after experiencing downward trends during the 80s. Besides, the gap between rural and urban poverty has also widened. The recent estimates show that more than one-third of our population lives in extreme poverty, and around 70% of these unfortunate people reside in rural areas. The results based on agro-ecological divisions of the country indicate that poverty is lowest in the barani areas of the Punjab because of better opportunities in terms of employment in other sectors, particularly, the services sector as well as overseas migration. The highest is observed in Balochistan may be due to nonavailability of irrigation water and low rainfall making dwellers more vulnerable to droughts seriously affecting the crops and the livestock which are the main sources of their livelihood. Poverty is widely spread in irrigated areas of the country particularly in Southern Punjab and Sindh where feudal system still
North American Pollution Spurs African Drought: Study | Common Dreams News
Decades of drought in central Africa may have had a surprising cause, according to new research that challenges the notion that the severe dry weather was triggered mainly by bad agricultural practices and overgrazing.. The research, done at the University of Washington, shows that the drought was at least partially caused by pollution in the Northern Hemisphere.. The researchers said that sulfate-laden aerosols coming from coal-burning factories from the 1960s through the 1980s actually slowed warming in the Northern Hemisphere compared to the Southern Hemisphere. This shifted tropical rain bands south, away from the Sahel region, and led ultimately to the near drying up of Lake Chad, which is used to water crops in surrounding areas.. Africas Sahel regionAfricas Sahel region We think people should know that these particles not only pollute air locally, but they also have these remote climate effects, said the studys lead author, Yen-Ting Hwang, a University of Washington doctoral student ...

Wry Thoughts About Religion: Hanging Chads in Politics and the Bible in Religious Faith
Throughout human history humans suddenly find themselves born into a complex world/environment neither their parents nor society hardly understand. Thousands of years of human evolution and progress has including among other coping mechanisms the creation of various religions that attempt to explain the yet unknown nature of this world and assist each societys ability to cope with it. Over these thousands of years and rapidly accelerating over the past 400 years with the invention of the Scientific Method, vast amount of knowledge & understanding of this world has come about. Though hardly known by the vast % of humans, especially those not acquainted with these scientific discoveries, this increase of knowledge and understanding is not widely known and understood but continues to accelerate.These discoveries have among other contributions to mankind increase every aspect of human well being by a very large measure, i.e. lifetime, health, safety, comfort, security, joy, pleasure, etc. These ...

Risk of stroke and oral anticoagulant use in atrial fibrillation: a cross-sectional survey | British Journal of General Practice
Only 53.0% of patients in the study at high risk of stroke were using oral anticoagulants. This proportion increased only slightly in the years 2007-2010. At the same time, higher than expected usage was found in the low-risk groups: 32.1% of people with CHADS2 = 0 and 23.0% with CHA2DS2VASc = 0. While anticoagulation may be appropriate for some of these individuals (for example, those with valvular disease), this suggests that use of these algorithms has still to become established. CHADS2 was first proposed over a decade ago, while CHA2DS2-VASc was introduced much more recently.. The estimated high-risk population increases when more inclusive definitions of hypertension are used. The authors considered the safest to be C, which increases the proportion identified from 56.9% to 65.9%. The additional inclusion of those with raised blood pressure levels (definition D) may be unreliable, particularly given the recent emphasis on home, rather than office-based measurements for diagnosis.23 About ...
Creating lens flares
The 13-part Creating a Short Film training series showcases what it actually takes to create a short film-from the brainstorming stage, all the way until opening night. Each installment of the series focuses on different aspects of the production workflow. Here, filmmaker Chad Perkins focuses on cinematography, providing real-world context by showing how the concepts highlighted in the course were applied in the making of The Assurance, the short film featured throughout the series. Chad starts with the basics of cinematography, including how to adjust exposure, get coverage, create more powerful camera moves, and use three-point lighting effectively. He also demonstrates how to set up and frame a shot, use lenses as a storytelling tool, properly light your actors, and more. The course concludes with real world projects that examine how to improve boring and ugly shots step-by-step ...
Spitballing The 2013 Blue Jay Bullpen - Mop-Up Duty
Photo credit: Jeff Chiu/Associated Press. In the first two weeks of the 2012 season, it seemed as though not much had changed from 2011. Blue Jays relievers had blown four of five save opportunities, issued the most walks (16) in the AL and were tied for the most losses with three. And it got even worse as the season wore on. The much-ballyhooed closer, Sergio Santos, hit the disabled list and would eventually require season-ending shoulder surgery. Francisco Cordero imploded in nearly every appearance that he made; he was relegated to Mop-Up Duty. Carlos Villanueva was pushed into an injury-decimated rotation. Luis Perez had season-ending Tommy John surgery. Jason Frasor landed on the DL with forearm tightness. A patchwork of minor leaguers in Chad Beck, Robert Coello, Jesse Chavez, Joel Carreno, Evan Crawford, Sam Dyson and Chad Jenkins were brought in to plug the holes. A bullpen that was rated one of the best in baseball coming into the season currently sits 13th out of 14 teams in terms of ...

Ive decided to put it all out there whether it reaches anyone or its just a way for me to get it out so I find some peace. Ive been battling cancer and all that goes with it since I was 26, just a kid two years out of university. I was in the typical post university gloom trying to adjust to the real world. I spent too much time in the weight room and bars on the weekend binge drinking, doing a poor job of picking up ladies. After bouncing around several shitty odd jobs for the first year after univ, I finally landed a so called career job with a multinational company working in an office with 50 of the most unhappy, unhealthy people youve ever seen. That lasted 8 months before I couldnt take it anymore so I left to coach tennis something I had done in the summers during high school and university. The money was good, the freedom was better, the sun and the people were fantastic. I had a love/hate relationship with tennis at the time but thats another story. I had settled down and was ...
April | 2012 | Dr. Chad Waterbury | Transforming Through Performance
Last week I was in Sao Paulo, Brazil to teach trainers, athletes and fitness buffs how to build a better body. On my day off I flew to Rio de Janeiro to check out the sun, surf, and bikinis.. While I was roaming around Ipanema Beach in a somewhat dehydrated state, I was relieved to see a cool little stand that sold coconut water, straight from the source. After mumbling through enough Portuguese to get my order across to the distracted Brazilian dude working the hut, he grabbed a young coconut, chopped off the top with what appeared to be a machete, and stuck a straw in the opening. I handed him a few reais and off I went because I didnt want to find out what other uses he might have for that machete.. Coconut water is readily available in Rio and its as much a part of their culture as iced tea is to America. In Brazil, there arent any outrageous claims with regard to the purported health benefits, and that was a refreshing change from what Ive been seeing around Los Angeles.. Ive been ...
